That's nothing ! I was today in an e-mail conversation with one of my
colleagues at Meteo France, who assured me that they still have to deal
with compilers that do not implement TR 15581.
It's my opinion that a Technical Report, written 12 years ago *and so
popular*, should be implemented by every compiler writer by now.
